Each summer I like to make a mini album documenting all the fun we've had. Even if we don't travel we do lots of fun family activities that should be documented and I like having them together in one fun album. This year I used a Heidi Swapp album and lots of Therm O Web adhesives, including Therm O Web Zips.
Zips have several uses. One basic one is using them to easily apply ribbons and trim. I tied the twine and see through blue ribbon, but I only had a small piece of the the thicker trim and it is not the sort of trim that ties easily anyway. Simply cut Therm O Web Zips to the length of the mini album, apply and remove the backing and attach the trim.
Another trick for using the Zips is to use them to apply loose glitter. For the cover of the album, it is easy to cut Zips and lay them in the shape of a star:
Pour on loose glitter and then shake off for a fun cover element.
Zips can also be used to adhere borders of embellishments
like the wood veneer here:
If you run out of Zots you can always use Zips to apply embellishments such as fabric flowers. Just cut the Zips short enough to hide behind the embellishment, adhere to flower...
and adhere to the page.
You can make patterns using Zips...
covered with loose glitter as accents.
Similarly, to applying loose glitter, Zips can be used to adhere micro beads. Zips even work perfectly on acrylic pages.
Zips are helpful if you need to apply several rows or layers of trim:
And rather than tying a bow with trim, sometimes it is easier to apply one strip of trim and then use another piece of trim to make the bow and attach it separately.
It keeps the line of the trim flat and straight
and you can adhere the bow to any part of the trim.
